Martina McBride spins a tale of regret with her song "Cheap Whiskey" that details the losses and aftermath of choosing the cheap solace of alcohol over real love.

The song was originally released as a single on Martina McBride's debut album The Time Has Come back in 1992 along with two other singles, the title track "The Time Has Come" and "That's Me" all of which charted on the Billboard Country charts.

"Cheap Whiskey", written by Emory Gordy, Jr. and Jim Rushing, tells the tale of a man who realized too late that his problems with the bottle had to stop. As he sits in his chair and looks at a picture of the woman he lost, he's haunted by the smell of cheap whiskey and the sound of her goodbye. 

Check out this great song and cautionary tale in the video below!

+++++++++++++++LYRICS+++++++++++++++

He sits all alone in his easy chair
Staring back on his lost yesterdays
Long before he encountered the bottle
And the demons that drove her away

In his hand he is holding her photograph
Her image all tear-stained and worn
Tonight he's embracing reality
And he curses the day he was born

And the darkness still echoes her warning
You can't have two loves in your life
Now the things that will haunt him
Until the day that he dies
Is the smell of cheap whiskey
And the sound of goodbye

Since the hour that she left he's been sober
And each breath that he draws makes him think
About the light of his life gone forever
When he traded her love for a drink

And the darkness still echoes her warning
You can't have two loves in your life
Now the things that will haunt him
Until the day that he dies
Is the smell of cheap whiskey
And the sound of goodbye
The smell of cheap whiskey
And the sound of goodbye
